Business cards—everyone has them, but how many people actually want them? How many people are genuinely excited to hand out their business cards when the situation arises?
Unfortunately, the vast majority of people throw away business cards they receive within the first few days, and it’s not hard to see why. All too often, business cards are just bland rectangles full of contact information but completely lacking personality.
Luckily, Print Peppermint has a solution to break you out of the boring business card rut. It’s called Die Cutting, and once you learn about it, you’ll never look at business cards the same way again.
Simply put, custom die-cut business cards are ones that have been specially trimmed to an unusual shape. This doesn’t just mean that they’re squares or circles instead of rectangles—they can be cut to literally any shape you can imagine.
Some especially complex shapes require laser cutting, but that’s no problem. Whatever form best suits you and your business can be achieved with a die-cut business card.
You might imagine that in order to get a very precise cut on the shape, an extraordinarily thin paper would need to be used (resulting in an extremely thin business card). After all, everyone’s had the frustrating experience of trying to cut snowflakes from thick paper. This is not the case with die-cutting, though.
Because our system for die cutting is very sophisticated, you don’t have to compromise on your desired thickness when you opt for these super customized cards. In fact, you can choose between 18 pt and 32 pt thickness so you have a card that truly suits you and your needs.
Custom die-cut business cards are pretty much exactly like any other business card, just much more cool. So, yes—you can print on both the front and back of a die-cut business card. This makes the design options especially wide, as you can make the front of the card look like the object you’ve had it cut to resemble, and put your contact information on the back.
When you’re seriously considering a custom die-cut business card, you’ll see that there’s no limit to what Print Peppermint can create. From cowboy boots and logo cuts to “sold” tags, there’s really nothing that we can’t do when it comes to these custom cards.
Surprisingly enough, custom die-cut business cards aren’t nearly as costly as you’d imagine. This is especially true when you consider the fact that you can consult with one of our designers during the setup process at no extra cost.
Plus, you have to factor in certain non-monetary benefits of a custom die-cut card. If a much larger number of people are hanging on to your business card, isn’t that worth a higher expenditure? It’s hard to place a value on brand recognition and top of mind awareness, but it’s certainly more than what it costs to purchase custom die-cut business cards.
There’s no concept too complicated for Print Peppermint to tackle, so hit us with your most creative custom business card ideas and we’ll deliver flawlessly. No matter how complex your die cut idea may be, we’re more than happy to bring it to life for you.
Die cut business cards are printed in full-color 4-color process on both sides (unless otherwise stipulated). These cards are available in thicknesses ranging from 18pt up to 80pt. We can die-cut any custom shape you can imagine and even offer laser die-cutting for the more complex designs. If you need help with a design or setting up your file correctly, our designers are happy to help create your die-files at no cost.

A layered die cut is when we glue multiple sheets of paper to make a massively thick card and then we only die cut on the top paper layer, for example.
